Sketches Galore

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I have been rather busy with knitting and sewing several garments and accessories at once, so I thought I’d share a few little sketches I have been doing while at work.

The one below was done a while ago

This is what I call my Spiked Collar collection

Designs for pattern fabric I may get printed at


Been meaning to sew something like this for a long time now, it’s just getting the fabric and the time now.


I drew these for my cousins wedding (she wants a black, gothic dress).

Work clothes… do ignore the scribbles

Peplums and frills.

Clothes for the rocker at work, designed with star print fabric

Well, if I ever get around to doing at least half the garments I designed here… that’s a start.

I’m currently sewing a sleeveless “over shirt” with a peplum, will post when complete!

Hi All,

I have been doing a few designs involving star print fabric when I came across this website

It’s a site where you can create your own fabric as well as buy some that have been created by others.

I wondered onto the skull and anime sections which I have ideas for already.

Deadly Nightshade Hawaiian Quilt ( with bonus pillow fronts for larger bolts)  DOTD skulls black medium size  Skull Candy Box Pink

The green and purple would look nice as a scarf or a handkerchief top.

Here’s a tetris fabric and skirt made with it

    Tetris Border Print

My absolute favourite this one!

Icons of the Silver Screen

I could make some many things from this fabric, can you name all the characters here?


P.S. I’ve completed the polka dot skirt I made for my sister, will post very soon!

Hi All,

As you may probably know, I like to trawl the net for inspiration (and to help boredom) and to share websites that I think others will find useful so here is another.

This is a community forum for fellow crafty people to share the projects and participate in craft challenges.

They cover everything from framed collages

I could spend hours looking through all the different types of art on here. If you’re ever stuck for what to do and want so make a gift, I say you should stop here as the choices are endless.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi All,

I thought it would be a good idea to share with you “fashnatics” another website that I have been viewing for a few years  called  (forgive me as I don’t know how to links properly)

This website covers everything from illustrations to ad campaigns, culture and music.

I came across this wonderful site during college as a task to collect illustrators for inspiration, which did help.

Hope you get inspired too,
